Thursday - Visiting Clendon Library, Friday - 2nd session at Manurewa Pools

Our first official full week at school today. We have had 24 out of 25 students for most of this week - so please remember whanau,holidays are over and all children enrolled at Rowandale School have started back and need to be at school every day unless they are unwell. If they are unwell they need to either text myself or ring our school office to inform us of their absence.

Our weather has been all over the show this week from rain, to overcast to 27+ heat... If you can send your child with a water bottle for the day (when in class) so they are hydrating themselves. If they are not in correct school uniform send them with a note to explain why or where their uniform is. 
I have noticed some lunches that have come in - if your child doesn't have food for the day, let me know we have fruit in schools, snacks and sandwiches available from our school office for your child. 

Yesterday we walked to Clendon Library - OMG that was a walk and a half. A huge thanks to Whaea Krishla (Qaid's mum for helping yesterday) without her we would of been struggling. The children will receive their cards hopefully by week 5, then they can start taking books out. It was a good opportunity to see how we work outside of our school - whanau your children done us proud as always (aside from the moaning, saying it was to far LOL). 
Here are a few shots of us while we were there...

 When we arrived - we were absolutely shattered from our long walk...

Off we go to find our learning adventure

 These two sharing what their book had to share
 Our girls having a good chill
In the bustle of it all
 Still on the hunt

Today we hit the Manurewa Pools for our second session. We managed to get 18 of us there today, an improvement of 14 last week... Here are some shots of us from today.

This is our second session and next week we have our class swimming in our pool Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Look how far we have come? Every Friday with togs, towel and a bag to carry our wet clothes... Let's Learn how to SWIM...

I wonder what next week will bring. Enjoy your weekend everyone.
